This course is for you

Agile... Scrum... MVP... DEVOPS... CI/CD... TDD... XP i.e. Extreme Programming... Those words/acronyms that you see in many articles or hear around you. Do you know what they mean? Why should you understand them? In an increasingly competitive context characterized by changing needs (new services, new functionalities...), Agile methods are revolutionizing project management and providing clear answers to current challenges.
